“Like most of today’s businesses, your company has a lot invested in its intellectual property (IP),” writes Wachs. “These assets are the unique advantages that separate you from your competitors.”

What are my intellectual property assets?

Your IP assets include the patents, trademarks, copyrights, and licenses that protect your ideas, products, services, and brand, as well as the trade secrets and business intelligence that make your company unique.

These assets add value to your company’s bottom line.

How do I identify my intellectual property assets?

Intellectual property attorney Jonathan Wachs conducts such audits to help his clients learn the nature and value of their IP assets and the steps needed to protect such assets from misappropriation or dilution.
